Natural health product- Most people know them as supplement. That's a plain language that I used when I talk about them.
They are the vitamins and minerals, the magically beneficial natural food extracts, chinese medicinal herbs, homeopathic medicines, probiotics and many more.
I mentioned in one of my previous article that these supplements does magic. It possessed the power to prevent and heal over a LONG PERIOD of time. Some people like to refer to it as an alternative treatment.
Simply said, these are amazing health products. If it is so great, how come it doesn't provide immediate cure? Why isn't it works for everyone?
Immediate cure-please go to your doctor. The key is our body. Everyone has a unique body system; the genetics make-up in our body is so unique that even if we are family, we don't have the same body system. Our body is capable of self-healing but that is time-consuming. What we are doing with natural health product is giving it a little boost; providing natural compounds that our body needs to heal.
Secondly, when we take these supplements, it is likely we are looking at symptoms and curing the symptoms. It is not a correct method of medication but we like to do it anyway. I do it too! The evidence of successful cure by our doctors is through scientific analysis of the problem- getting the X-ray, the MRI scan etc. Medicine have its own health failure too especially with pain killer, where you stop feeling the pain but the symptoms is still there. It is just that you wasn't aware of it.
Is supplements better than medicine? My short answer is YES but I do hope you understand that a diagnostic of your health situation would be beneficial. Have an excellent NHP week and complement your food with supplementation..
One last question for you: There are many companies that produce similar types of supplements. Are they the same?
